Mi Plu Karo Amika, Mi vo dona plu komenta koncerne plu ‘pre-loka verbi = intra Mario ergo:

At 05:42 PM 3/15/04 +0000, Mario pa grafo:

U paleo sof= i-pe pa ambula ko tri ex an stude-pe epi u horti ex an viki. *** = de peri intra=

  ex =3D from; out of; (written) by
  de =3D of; from; about; to(= infinitive) ; xxx(general-purpose preposition)
 epi =3D on; on top of  =    peri =3D around (within); around the outside of  [meaning depends on con= text]    intra =3D in; inside

Du vide u vermi qi pa vora u vegeta, mo ex= u stude-pe pa cide id ko an pedi. U bi dice po-co: =AD Sko-pe, qe ne es = u akti-mali cide u-ci vive-ra?=AD U sko-pe reakti: =ADTu habe logika, so i= d es.-

*** id es so = [it is thus] I think that= the VERB, ~es~, according to good syntax, ought to have a subject and an = object. It is also my understanding that, in English, “So it is’” i= s acceptable usage. However, just because we use slovenly syntax in Englis= h doesn’t mean we should use it when speaking in Glosa.

=ADSed id pa vor= a na sito, dice u mo stude-pe, qe mi ne pa face bene?=AD *** =ADSed id pa v= ora na sito,- dice u mo stude-pe, -qe, mi ne pa akti bene?=AD = glos.( question I not did act good= ) [did I n= ot do well?]

U sko-pe reakti: =ADTu habe logika.- U tri stude-pe dice: = =ADBi dice kontra ra; ne u bi pote habe logika!=AD

*** = (two say contrary thing) [Both say opposite= things] In this case, I feel that Glosa’s linguistic backbone is show= ing, and so, I think that in speaking, using Glosa, we would not use such = a bare form, but would, instead, fill the sentence out a bit.

U tri st= ude-pe dice: =ADSed, u bi dice kontra ra; plu bi ne pote habe logika!=AD


Mystery: Both (singular) have a contradiction. BUT Not both of them

= (plural) can be right. ##

 Not only does Glosa not translate from Engl= ish word-for-word, but it  seems, also, not to do so from Esperanto (or was=  it Spanish?).

E u sko-pe reakti: =ADTu habe logika.-

Un anciano sabi=
o se paseaba con tres de sus disc=EDpulos en el jard=EDn
de su pueblo.
endo un limaco que devora una lechuga el primer disc=EDpulo lo
aplasta con=
el pie.
El segundo dice entonces: =ADMaestro, =BFno es pecado aplastar es=
El maestro le responde: =ADTienes raz=F3n, as=ED es.
o el com=EDa nuestro alimento, =BFno he hecho bien?
El maestro le responde=
=ADTienes raz=F3n. El tercero dice: =AD Ambos dicen cosas contradictoria= s, no pueden los dos tener la raz=F3n. Y el maestro le responde: =ADTiene= s raz=F3n.
